RESEARCH INTERESTS during lab tenure
“I am interested in using information about where things happen (i.e., space, or location) to improve conservation of the oceans. This includes the use of GIS and other spatially explicit approaches ranging from habitat modeling, to marine protected area design, to fisheries bycatch reduction. My Ph.D. work used the U.S.pelagic swordfish fishery as a case study to explore how spatial analytical techniques can be used to improve the conservation of long-lived marine vertebrates. For my M.Sc., I estimated the incidental mortality of a porpoise called the vaquita, Phocoena sinus, in the upperGulf of California.
For my postdoctoral research here at ASU, I am currently working with The Nature Conservancy and World Wildlife Fund prioritize conservation activities within a network of 54 conservation areas throughout theGulf of California. I am developing indices of biological irreplaceability and vulnerability, as well as trying to understand how these 54 areas are connected among each other.”
